COHABITATION RECORDS 

PART 7 
(continued from previous issue) 



In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes and 
persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record of the 
cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court Clerk was required to maintain a record 
book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for his service. In Section 6, Chapter 40 of the Act, it was 
misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866, This section of the Act was amended by 
Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868.

In Memory of Allen Churchill 



OS 

With great sadness we must report that the Pitt County Family Researchers has lost another 
great friend and genealogist when Levis Allen Churchill (called Allen by his friends) passed away 
at his home on Monday, Feb. 20, 2006, at the age of 75. Allen was one of those people that after 
you met them you were compelled to verbally proclaim "What a nice man!" He was warm, witty, 
kind, generous, compassionate, dependable and serious. And boy was he serious about genealogy. 

When Bill Kittrell called the first meeting of the Pitt County Family Researchers in the Fall 
of 1994, Allen was there as one of the founders. He was elected as the first Vice President of the 
group and then served as the second President of PCFR from 1996 to 1997. He then served on the 
PCFR Board several years. 

Everyone who knew Allen, knew how much he loved to help people research their family 
genealogy. Allen's own family history was rich with connections into numerous prominent and 
obscure families in Pitt County and eastern North Carolina. He haunted the Pitt County Court 
House and the North Carolina Collection of the J. Y. Joyner Library at East Carolina University 
doing research. He even started his own genealogy collection on local families in the East 
Carolina University Manuscript Collection in the J. Y. Joyner Library. 

He apparently never knew a stranger because he would boldly ask anyone and everyone 
about their family history. Because he was so generous with his time and knowledge he made 
numerous friends all over the State and nation. He published nearly one dozen books on local 
genealogy, not to make money but to share with others. He then put copies of them in all the local 
libraries of the surrounding counties in hopes of helping someone. 

I knew Allen as a witty man who loved his family and his church, loved roses and loved to 
stay at their place on the Pamlico River. He and his wonderful wife Rachel opened their home to 
all their friends and it was always hard to leave because of all the laughter. Allen was a living 
resource about Greenville's history since he worked at such vanished landmarks as the first Silo 
Restaurant and ran the movie projectors in the three Greenville theaters, the Pitt, The State and 
The Colony. He was a notorious night owl and it wasn't unlike him to call a dozen times late at 
night to fellow researchers if he was working on a family. He was fun to be around and made you 
feel good about yourself. 

Allen Churchill was a native and lifelong resident of Pitt County. He was a graduate of 
Greenville schools and East Carolina University. He served a number of years as Assistant Clerk 
of Court for Pitt County and later began a career with East Carolina University as an Associate 
Professor with the Division of Continuing Education, retiring in 1992. He was an active member 
of the Hooker Memorial Christian Church. His body was laid to rest in the mausoleum at 
Pinewood Memorial Park. 

At his death, Allen left his wife of 56 years, Rachel Little Churchill; a son, Levis Erik 
Churchill and wife Susan, of Graham, NC; a daughter, Rachel Erika Churchill, of Snow Hill, NC; 
grandchildren, Jakob Alexander Churchill and Kirsten Taylor Churchill; a brother, Mack 
Churchill, of Atlantic Beach, NC; and a sister, Carolyn Studeman and husband Daryl, of Atlanta, 
Ga. 

All of Allen's friends know he was truly a wonderful person and he left a generous legacy 
to the future with all his publications. He will be missed. Roger Kammerer

CONTENTNEA ASSOCIATION AT RED BANKS 

Eastern Reflector, Friday, Oct. 17, 1902 

The Sunday session of the Contentnea Association of the Primitive Baptists at Red Banks was favored 
by all the circumstances that go to make such occasions all that the church and the visiting public could 
anticipate. Weather conditions were perfect, insuring a pleasant drive through the country, and allowing 
open air service, which made it possible for a much larger number to hear the sermons that the church 
could have accomodated. A raised platform under a large oak served as pulpit and around this, completing 
almost a circle and extending far out into the grove, substantial board seats had been constructed. The first 
sermon of the morning was by Elder P. D. GOLD, of Wilson, editor of Zion's Landmark. The morning 
service was concluded with a sermon by Elder BUCK, Elders ROBERSON and JONES preached in the 
afternoon. 

With a crowd estimated from two thousand to three thousand, it is doubtful if ever a similar occasion 
witnessed better order. 

The writer did not see nor hear of a single drunk, or any incident to mar the pleasure of the association 
proceedings. With such a crowd, under no restraint apart from that attached to the nature of the occasion, 
the deportment of those having no interest in the religious program was noteworthy. 

The feature of the noon recess was dinner upon the grounds. Well, it was "a square meal." Somebody 
said that the people around Red Banks had been cooking for a week. Many visitors carried lunch, and a fine 
courtesy was made for all.

McGlohon Boy Shot 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., November 19, 1890 

The 12 year old son of Elder Fred MCGLOHON was accidently shot by his uncle Louis MCGLOHON, on 
last Thursday night. It seems that the boys went hunting, had pistols along with them and while practicing a 
discharge from Louis' pistol entered the body of the younger boy and after penetrating the heart came out 
on his back. He died instantly. Such is the sad wail when boys are carrying pistols.

Petition to Annex Part of Pitt to Edgecombe County, 1787 

This petition was found in the NC General Assembly Session Records, Nov.-Dec. 1787, box 3, folder 23; 
NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

BOOS 

"To the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina now setting at Tarborough 
The Petition of the subscribers humbly Sheweth 

That we your petitioners composa a small part of the County of Pitt, that we are in that part of it which is at 
the greatest distance from the Court House adjoining the County of Edgecomb to the Court House of which 
latter County it is but the distance of a few miles from our respective places of residence compared to the 
great distance we are from the other. Your Petitioners further shew that between their respective dwellings 
and the Court House of Pitt County there are several very large and in time of fresher almost impassable 
swamps, add to there the low grounds of Tar river two miles in breadth which we all have to pass on public 
meetings at a very considerable expense and great risque of our Persons, whereas on the contrary between 
our habitations and the Court House of Edgecomb there are no such obstacles and the distance is not so 
great we may very conveniently go and return after doing our business in the compass of a day. All these 
considerations have induced us to exhibit to your honors an exact view of our present situation and implore 
your legislative interposition on our behalf by annexing us to the County of Edgecomb we are the more 
emboldened to do this as we have always demeaned ourselves in such a manner as to give full 
demonstrations of the most loyal affection to the present Government and to merit the title of good citizens 
and because we are fully able to evince to your honors the reasonableness and necessity of this aplication 
which if granted will be ever held in greatful rememberance by your humble petitioners"

Fire at J. S. Hines Near Ayden, 1893 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., May 3, 1893 

Mr. J. S. HINES, who lives near Ayden, told us the other day of a narrow escape from fire he had on that 
windy Friday of week before last. His wife concluded she would scald the bedding and furniture that day, 
and while heating water out in the yard the wind blew sparks into a lot of bed clothing piled up in the 
piazza of the house. In a moment the fire was in a big blaze. Fortunately Mr. HINES was very near the 
house and summoning help with his farm bell succeeded in putting out the fire after a hard fight. About $20 
worth of bedding was burned and the house damaged slightly. Mr. HINES received severe burns about the 
hands and singed his hair while fighting the flames.

Johnnie Stokes Fell Dead 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., March 14, 1883 

Johnnie STOKES, a 16 year old son of Edward STOKES, of Swift Creek township, this county, dropped 
dead in the field last Friday. He had not complained of being sick and fell dead while at his work. 

Lemuel McGowan Killed Himself 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., February 27, 1884 

Mr. Lemuel MCGOWAN, who resides below Greenville, killed himself by cutting his throat last 
Wednesday. He had been acting strangely for several days prior to his death, and when his absence was 
discovered, search was made for him. He was found in a dense pine thicket about a mile from his home, 
lying upon his back, with a frightful gash , in which a man could turn his fist across reaching almost from 
ear to ear. The knife with which the deed was committed was lying in a pool of blood about a yard from the 
body when found. Life was not quite extinct and Dr. J. T. SLEDGE was sent for, but could render no 
assistance. Mr. MCGOWAN dying in about fifteen minutes after Dr. SLEDGE reached him. The causes 
prompting Mr. MCGOWAN to take his life are supposed to be trouble over the loss of his property, which 
brought on insanity. His family is in very destitute circumstances. 

David Andrews Dead

Alf Forbes Playing With Gun Kills Man 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., Nov. 12, 1890 

A very sad homicide occurred four miles above Greenville Monday afternoon. The particulars, as we 
learned them yesterday, are that Mr. A. A. FORBES, who had come down to town with a load of tobacco 
for shipment, left word for his little son Alf and a negro named Bill, a halfwitted man who lived on the 
place, to carry home a buggy that had been borrowed from a neighbor. Before starting with the buggy Alf 
had gone in his father's room and put the latter's pistol in his pocket. When they had got off up the road a 
bit the boy climbed up in the buggy to ride and told the negro to pull it along. While sitting in the buggy he 
began fooling with the pistol and fired it off in the air. He fired it again, the second ball striking the negro 
man in the back. The man fell in the road and the boy thinking he had done so in fun called to him and told 
him to go on with the buggy. Not getting up the boy went and jumped on the man playfully, and as he did 
so saw the man gasping in the last agonies of death. This frightened the little fellow and he ran back home 
and told what had happened. It is truly a sad occurrence, and draws out sympathy for the parents and family 
of the little boy. It also be a warning against boys fooling with pistols.

Elizabeth TISON vs Wm B MOORE} July Term 1800 

William B. MOORE defendant in this suit maketh oath that the property sold by him as administrator of 
Samuel TISON as well that which was sold by the consent of the plaintiff as without amounted to the sum 
of one hundred and twenty four pounds some shillings or thereabouts. That the property sold as high as 
usual at such sales except what the plaintiff herself bought to the amount of about twenty pounds which 
sold very low. That Samuel TISON the deed left property at his death to the full value of that sold by the 
deponant, to wit a horse (house?) worth fifty pounds, eleven head of cattle, upwards of fifty head of hogs, a 
flock of sheep & furniture and other things. That an inventory of the property was taken which this 
deponant can procure & can prove the property to be worth as much as that sold by him. That all this 
testimony he could and would have produced on the trial, but was informed by his council in the court 
below it would be immaterial and unnecessary and under this belief he came to trial without it. That he was 
also advised by his council below that there was no made by which a distribution of the property could be 
had but by compelling the plaintiff to administer or to administer himself, and to sell the property for if an 
action was commenced the Statute of limitations would bar. Wm B MOORE

Maimed & Blind Civil War Soldiers 

The following are selections taken from a Register of Maimed Pensioners and Artificial Limbs found in the 
NC State Auditors Papers, AUD 6.1; NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

By Resolution and Law the second Legislative session of 1866 voted to provide artificial limbs for veterans 
or commutation money ($50) for those who either had procured limbs at their own expense or had useless 
limbs. Pensions for the blind and maimed were started by Public Law in 1879 which provided only for 
veterans who had lost their sight, both feet or both hands to get $60 a year for life and was administrated by 
county committees. The stipend increased to $120 a year in 1883. In 1889, the benefit was extended to 
veterans who had become blind since the war.

them than they will be able to bear. If no colds or frosts from now, come to see me in peach and apple time 
and I will show you I am truthing. 

Farmers are very busy just now preparing and planting cotton, and trade is almost completely paralyzed. 
Occasionally a fellow steps in and wants a square of pork and asks you please to charge it to account. 
Miss Annie, daughter of Fred HARDING, Esq., will be 15 years old next July and weighs 175 pounds. 
Justice HARDING and daughter are residents of Swift Creek township. He raises plenty of hog and 
hominy. 

I understand that Mr. Skilton DENNIS, of Contentnea township has two daughters, 15 and 13 years of age, 
weighing 240 and 200 lbs. Respectively. Skilton is a good, sober Democrat, who raises plenty of hog and '

Baker vs. Carson, Supreme Court Case, 1833 

The following is an abstract of Supreme Court case #2785; John Bunyan Baker and wife Licetta vs. 
Rebecca Carson, widow of Thomas Carson, dec'd.; found in the NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. 

Contributed by Roger Kammerer.

(TO (Jo CTD uD Ou 

Deposition of John B. BAKER, May 30, 1831 

John Bunyan BAKER married on March 29, 1 826 to Lisetta CARSON. At that time he lived on a piece of 
rented land about three or four miles from the residence of Mrs. Rebecca CARSON and lived on it until 
January 1827 when his lease ran out. He was planning to move to a piece of land he owned about three or 
four miles farther away from Rebecca CARSON'S residence and was "in treaty" with Amos TURNAGE 
for the purchase of another piece of land adjoining it. Rebecca CARSON intervened and said the manor 
plantation on which she resides contained a large portion of uncleared land, which was of no service to her 
She said a good settlement could be made by them and proposed that the heirs have a division made of the 
lands of Thomas CARSON, dec'd. and BAKER and his wife should take possession of the uncleared lands 
contained m the part allotted them and make a permanent settlement there. Rebecca declared her readiness 
to make them at any moment a conveyance of all her interest and right in the uncleared part. BAKER and 
his wife said they couldn't move there when their lease ran out because there was no place to settle 
Rebecca told them they should live at her house until a new place could be rendered fit to receive them 
Rebecca was distressed that her youngest daughter would move so far from her and her protests were so 
reasonable and kind that BAKER and his wife assented to them. In January 1827, they moved to Rebecca's 
house and m February Court 1827 they filed with the other heirs of Thomas CARSON, dec'd to have their 
share of the lands allotted to them. At the Partition, BAKER and wife were allotted Lot #2 on Pine Log 
Swamp on William HEMBY'S line, through Hurley Branch Pocosin, being 152 acres. They made a 
contract with Rebecca and she approved of the division. BAKER then sold his land and got TURNAGE to 
break off the deal for the TURNAGE land and they settled on the land allotted them. BAKER said he cut a 
ditch on the cleared part more than 600 yards long, 3 feet wide and averaging 3 feet deep. He erected a 
decent dwelling house and a plain, but substantial, log kitchen, smoke house, corn crib and other smaller 
erections. He cleared between 20 and 29 acres, which yielded him last year 2 V 2 to 3 bushels or corn an 
acre. All of this was done with the knowledge of Rebecca CARSON in execution and performance of the 
contract between them. On March 20, 1828, after having gotten their new settlement fit to receive them, 
they moved onto the land and lived there without the slightest intimation from Rebecca of any design on 
her part to violate their contract. On Sept. 25, 1830, a notice from Rebecca was delivered by the Sheriff of 
Pitt County to BAKER to leave Rebecca's land by January next (1 83 1) or she would go to court. Ruel 
ANDERSON acted as agent for Rebecca CARSON to get the eviction notice. BAKER said that a short 
time bbefore the notice was received by him that there had been some disagreement between himself and 
Ruel ANDERSON, brother of Rebecca CARSON. BAKER believed this whole business was intigated by 
Ruel ANDERSON who sought to avenge his private quarrel. BAKER went to Rebecca's house and in front 
of witnesses applied to her to learn if she authorized the notice and she answered that ANDERSON would 
not have done it had he not had authority for it. BAKER proposed to Rebecca that he would remove from 
the land as she required, if she would pay him back for the improvements. But she refused. In April 183 1, 
BAKER and wife were served with a declaration of ejectment. BAKER prayed to the May term 1 83 1 Pitt 
County Court for relief. John B . BAKER 



Deposition of Mrs. Rebecca CARSON. Sept 8. 1831 

She said that Thomas CARSON died and by Will left land to his widow Rebecca during her life and 
widowhood. They had three daughters: Elizabeth, Sarah and Lisetta, who married John B. BAKER 
According to Rebecca, the marriage of John B. BAKER and Licetta took place against the wishes of the 
BAKER family and Rebecca fearing Licetta would be treated badly if they settled in the BAKER 
neighborhood at a distance from her, Rebecca induced John to settle on her life estate. Rebecca said she 
never intended to give John deed to the land, but did assent to the division and having him building on it 
and occupying it. Rebecca said John erected erected indifferent buildings on the land, cleared some 10 to 
15 acres and occupied it since March 1828. Rebecca said that John treated her harsh and unkind after they

inhabited the new dwelling. She said John keeps her daughter from visiting her when she was sick and 
believes he has done much injury to her stock, which has never happened before until he became a near 
neighbor to her. Rebecca got her brother, Ruel ANDERSON, to take steps to get them off the land.

Justices, July 5, 1831, of Selah HENBY (HEMBY), Absalom SANDERS, Sherrod TISON and Jesse 
BAKER. 

Deposition of Selah HENBY (HEMBY) 

She said she heard Rebecca CARSON several times persuade BAKER and wife to settle on the Carson 
land. If BAKER paid the expenses for division, and he settled on it, she would give up all her right to all 
the uncleared land. HEMBY said BAKER was reluctant at first, but did comply with her. John B BAKER 
was about to buy the Benjamin BAKER place. Rebecca said that her daughter was young and would 
require her further assistance and instruction. For BAKER and his wife to buy the Ben BAKER place they 
would have to go into debt. Signed Selah (her mark) HENBY 

Deposition of Absalom SANDERS 

SANDERS said he heard Rebecca say she would give each of them the preference to rent that part of the 
land that fell to them and if they would not rent it, she would have liberty to rent it out to someone else She 
did not want her children to settle on it until it was devised. SANDERS heard Rebecca say her daughter 
Lisetta was young when she married and she didn't want her to settle far from her. According to the Will of 
Thomas CARSON, Rebecca could only get firewood and rail timber from the woodland. The Will 
prohibited her from cutting boxes or making tar or anything that would damage the land. SANDERS heard 
Rebecca express great confidence in BAKER after he settled on the land. She would not let Allen TISON 
build on his lot because he had treated her so mean and BAKER had been so good to her. SANDERS was 
at Rebecca CARSON's house on Nov. 2, 1830 when BAKER confronted Rebecca after the eviction notice 
had been delivered. BAKER asked her to pay him for his labor, but she made no reply and left the house.

Deposition of Sherrod TISON 

In February 1827, Mrs. Rebecca CARSON, John B. BAKER and his wife, Licetta were together at the 
store of Sanders and Tison. Sherrod got into a conversation with Rebecca in which she said her daughters 
married men without land and the Will of her husband gave her all the lands during her life and 
widowhood. She said that she had more lands than she could use and the wood land was of very little use to 
her except for timber and firewood. She was willing that her son-in-laws should have some profit from the 
land and if they had the land divided, they could settle on their parts. Sherrod said he was on the 
Commission to divide the estate of land and negroes of Thomas CARSON among the heirs. During the 
Division, Sherrod said he had another conversation with Rebecca in which she said she could not give up 
the cleared land, that she needed that for her support.TISON told her that she could rent the land to her 
sons-in-law, the part they received if they would give her the same rent as others for her support, which she 
agreed. TISON said that if they build and settle on the land and improve it, she shouldn't take it away from 
them until they had benefit of their labor. She said she would not, that she only wanted privilege of the 
woodland. Sherrod TISON 

Deposition of Jesse BAKER 

Jesse BAKER said that in 1826 my son, John B. BAKER married Lisetta CARSON. That at the time John 
was rentmg a place belonging to the heirs of James MAY, known as the BECTON place. During that year 
John was planning to purchase lands adjoining a place he then owned, 3 or 4 miles from where he lived 
then, which provided shingles and lumber for building on that place. Jesse said he talked with Rebecca 
CARSON frequently and she wanted him to use his influence as a father to have him settle on the Carson 
land. After John moved to Mrs. CARSON'S, Jesse was there and heard Rebecca CARSON say that John 
could stay as long as he pleased. Signed Jesse (his mark) BAKER

land and that he expected to get paid for making it by Mrs. Rebecca CARSON. Richard heard BAKER say 
he does not have right to the land. CARSON said BAKER first settled on the woodland part of the land He

negro man who worked part of the year on the land. Richard CARSON 

Deposition of Joel TISON 

TISON heard BAKER say he had no right to the land and would leave off of it if he got paid for his labor

BAKER made three crops on the land. He put up a fence since 1 83 1 . Joel TISON 

Deposition of Elizabeth WILLOUGHBY 

WILLOUGHBY says she heard BAKER say he didn't have a right to the land and that Mrs. Rebecca 
CARSON had the advantage of him. She could turn him off the land whenever she pleased. 
WILLOUGHBY heard that Mrs. Licetta BAKER was "at law" about the land. 

Elizabeth WILLOUGHBY was a daughter of Mrs. Rebecca CARSON and did see Licetta at her mother's 
house a few times. When Rebecca CARSON was sick and under the care of Dr. RANDOLPH, 
WILLOUGHBY said that she sent a negro man named Charles and a Mrs. ANDERSON to send for her 
sister Licetta BAKER to come to their mother's house. Willoughby heard her mother say that Allen TISON 
and John B. BAKER might live on the woodland if they would have it divided among the heirs and they 
could have what they could make off of it, but not live on it. WILLOUGHBY said that Allen TISON did 
not live on the land that fell to him. Elisabeth WILLOUGHBY 

Deposition of Allen TISON

its grandmother (Rebecca CARSON) when BAKER objected to it and said he did not want his child or any

other person that he had control over to visit Rebecca CARSON. This was before the Court order notice 
was given to BAKER. Allen TISON was displeased with Mrs. Rebecca CARSON, when he was about to 
carry the Baker child over to her house, but they had not had any unpleasant words with each other. TISON 
said that he has had a habit of drinking to much spirits at times and was drinking at the time he was going 
to carry the BAKER child over to Mrs. CARSON'S. TISON said BAKER grew a garden on the land the 
first year and made very little on the land the first year on account of the roughness of the land and wet 
weather. Allen TISON 



Depositions at the store of Sherrod TISON, Pitt Co. on March 2, 1833 

Deposition of Alfred MO YE 

He says that in March or April 1 827 he was called on by John B. BAKER and Allen TISON to survey the 
land of Thomas CARSON, dec'd. MOYE proceeded to survey and divide the land among the heirs as 
directed by the commissioners appointed for that purpose. While he was surveying he was at the house of 
Rebecca CARSON (except for the time he was engaged in the woods) where she provided for him and after 
the division had taken place, MOYE recollected that John B. BAKER appeared to be gratified at the lot of 
land that fell to him and his wife. It appeared to also be convenient to Mrs. Rebecca CARSON. That there 
was a piece of woodland that John B. BAKER wanted to clear and settle on. John B. BAKER paid MOYE 
$9.00 as his half part of the expenses of the survey in May 1 827.

William MAY and Goold HOYT, Justices ordered to take the depositions of Wiley NOBLES and 
John S. BROWN, May 5, 1837. 

Deposition of Wilev NOBLES , May 5, 1837 

Nobles said he surveyed the land in question the day before, it being 13 Vi acres. He valued the 

improvements on the land when new at $210. He valued the improvements: 

Dwelling house $62.50 

kitchen $13.00 

smokehouse $13.00 

corn crib $20.00 

henhouse $2.50 

gig shelter $3.00 

garden $5.50 

well $3.00 

ditches $17.50 

clearing the land $70.00 

The houses are principally constructed of pine logs, the dwelling house logs I think are split and the inside 
hewed. The corn crib logs are split but as to the others I do not know whether they are split or not. The hen 
house, kitchen and dwelling are decayed some. NOBLES judged the value of the land at $32.50 per year 
from 183 1 until this time. Half the ditches need considerable work. NOBLES said he saw the land several 
tunes before it was cleared, but only from the road. NOBLES lived 8 V z miles from this land. Wiley 
NOBLES was county surveyor until he resigned Feb. term 1 837. Signed: Wilie NOBLES

Deposition of John S. BROWN . May 5, 1837 

BROWN says he was with NOBLES surveying the land the day before. The dwelling house, smoke house 
and corn crib are split pine buildings. Inside the dwelling the logs are hewn. The kitchen and hen house are 
round logs with pine slab roofs. The hen house and kitchen are considerably decayed. The garden and well 
is in tolerable good repair and the ditches need clearing out. BROWN said Mrs. Rebecca CARSON is about 
50 years old the same age as him. The ditch on the property is 627 yards long. Some portions are 5 feet 
deep and other parts are not more than 6 inches. It is 3 feet wide in some places and 2 feet wide in 
others.The narrow part of the ditch was 125 feet long. The shallowest part is 20 yards long. BROWN said 
he passed the land on the road before BAKER moved on it. It was piney land, l/3 rd of which would be 
heavy land to clear. The balace of the land might be plowed up by scutter grubbing. It was worth $5.50 to 
clear at a total of $70.00. It is worth at least $8 to $9 per acre considering all the improvements BAKER 
made. BROWN recalled a ditch along the road before BAKER moved on the land. J. S. BROWN 

Deposition of Willie BROWN . May 5, 1837 

BROWN says he had never been on the land but helped survey it the day before. BROWN says he saw the 
ditches about 20 years before. There was a ditch on the land along the road before John B. BAKER moved 
on it. The ditch was 330 yards long, 3 feet wide and 1 !4 feet deep on average. Willie BROWN 

Deposition of Lewis TURNAGE. May 16. 1837

Red Banks Church Well 

Daily Reflector, Thurs., Sept. 12, 1907 

Elder H. B. TUCKER tells us that some wanton persons have been causing considerable trouble to the well 
at Red Banks church, four miles from town. An old fashioned sweep was first used at the well, but 
somebody tore this down. Then a wheel with chain and bucket was provided, but the chain was soon 
carried away. Recently a pump was put in the well, but in less than a week this was broken and rendered 
useless. The well is at a convenient place for people to get water when passing, and it was kept in use as a 
matter of public convemence. Why any one should be so wanton as to keep injuring the well we are unable 
to see. Some people are very thoughtless of the comfort and convenience of others

Stonewall Lodge History 



The following history of Stonewall Lodge in Robersonville, Martin County, NC was written by Paul D 
Roberson, Master of Stonewall Lodge. It appeared in the Weekly Record, Robersonville, Aug. 20, 1941 . 

Contributed by Judy Nobles Lewis. 



Stonewall Lodge was organized during April, 1869, Robersonville. On December 27 1869 the lodge 
was convened by dispensation from the Grand Lodge for the purpose of constituting, consecrating and 
dedicating the lodge and installing the officers, which was done according to the ancient usage The 
growth of the lodge has been continuous, and its activities have followed closely along the well-chosen 
path of Freemasonry. 

On the 19 th day of August, 1871, Henry D. ROBERSON gave a lot on which to build a temple This 
lot of 70 feet square on the east side of which is now Main Street of Robersonville, is the home of 
Stonewall lodge. Immediately after the lot was given, the members of the local lodge constructed the 
building which is now located on the lot. It is the oldest building now standing on Main Street. 

The lower floor of this building was used for the purposes of refreshment by the Masons and by 
Professor Stephen W. OUTTERBRIDGE as a school until the latter part of the nineteenth century The 
lower floor is still used by the Masons when they desire the use of it. The lodge permits the Senior and 
Junior Woman's clubs and other non-profit organizations which have for their purpose the betterment of 
the town and community of Robersonville to use this lower floor at the present time. At the present time 
one of the small rooms on the lower floor is used by the Junior Woman's Club for the purposes of 
conducting a public library. 

Originally the entrance to the second floor was by means of steps entering from the south side of the 
building. This was changed several years ago by removing the original steps and making a winding stairs

Cohabitation Records 

Part 8 

(continued from February 2006 issue) 

In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes 
and persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record 
of the cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court Clerk was required to 
maintain a record book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for his service. In Section 6, 
Chapter 40 of the Act, it was a misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1, 1866, This 
section of the Act was amended by Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of 
recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868. Contributed by Roger Kammerer.

In Memory of Jeff McAllister 

♦♦♦ ♦♦♦ 

Pitt County Family Researchers has lost another friend, Jeff McAllister, a former PCFR 
Officer. Jeff joined PCFR in 1996, served on the Executive Board in 1997, was Vice-President of 
PCFR in 1998, and served as Secretary of PCFR in 1999. He and his wife Phyllis were always so 
gracious; letting us put together the Quarterly at their beautiful home. Back then, we would have 
pages of the Quarterly strung everywhere, with people collating, some stapling, some stuffing 
envelopes and others addressing. Then we would spend another hour trying to understand the 
bulk mail rules and get the Quarterlies in stacks and into certain tagged bags. There would always 
be laughter and of course lots of genealogical talk. 

I have a personal connection to Jeff that I didn't realize until about two years after I knew him. 
He had ancestry back to West Virginia and would occasionally ask me about research techniques 
on tracking that family there. About two years later I was tracking a line of my mother's family 
out of Texas, which lead me to Indiana and then West Virginia. When I went on-line looking on 
message boards for this family I found a message about them. It turned out to be a message from 
Jeff McAllister! He came off the son and I came off the daughter of the same family. So, however 
unlikely, I found a distant cousin in Greenville, NC, since my mother's people lived in Texas. Jeff 
was warm, direct, intelligent, and loved gardening. I really appreciated his being direct (which 
came from his military training) and he did much for PCFR in its troubled and stumbling years. 
He will be missed and Phyllis and their children will be in our thoughts. 

According to his obituary, Jeff McAllister, 81, died Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2006, in Greenville, 
NC at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. He was a native of Hopewell, Va. and later served in the 
United States Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict. Following his military career, 
he was employed with the Voice of America as a radio technician. For several years he served as 
director of the Pitt County Council on Aging. 

Mr. McAllister was preceded in death by four brothers and three sisters. He is survived by his 
wife of 24 years, Phyllis J. McAllister; two sons, James McAllister of Winston-Salem, NC and 
Kevin McAllister of Scituate, Maine; three daughters, Eileen Demain of Fairbanks, Alaska, 
Kathleen Albritton of Mount Airy, NC and Heather Jones of Denver; two stepsons, Joseph' 
Kernen of Greenville, NC and James Allen Kernen of Dallas; Tx., a brother, John W. McAllister 
of Dinwiddie, Va.; three sisters, Barbara Denson of Hampton, Va., Nancy Krise of Hopewell, 
Va., and Helen Pitman of Kilmarnock, Va.; 10 grandchildren, Steven, Chris, Josh, Megan, 
Jessica, Jordan, Eliza, Tom, Caitlin and Richard; four step-grandchildren, Jonathan, Allen, 
Benjamin and Rebecca; and two great-grandchildren. — Roger Kammerer

Daily Reflector, Sat., July 10, 1910 

Mr. W. E. WHITEMORE, of Scotland Neck, has been here this week visiting his nieces, Mesdames E 
B. HIGGS and S. J. EVERETT. Mr. WHJTMORE was a Confederate soldier and did service in the cavalry. 
For a short time he was stationed near Red Banks Church, this county, where two of his comrades were 
killed and one captured when on picket duty in attempting to prevent an advance of Federal troops on 
Greenville. He and Col. R. R. COTTEN were in the same company, and they are always happy to meet.

To the Honorable General Assembly of the State of North Carolina. The Petition of Francis HARPER of

Your Petitioner further Sheweth, that some time after the Purchase aforesaid, he bought of Alexander 
HARPER hos moity or half part in the said tract of Land, and entered into the Possession thereof, and hath 
continued in peaceable and quiet possession for the span of forty five years or there abouts, not doubting 
but the Grant to the aforesaid James MCILWEAN had been to be found of record and duly Perpetuated. 
But now so it is that your Petitioner hath lately made due and diligent search in the Secretary's Office for 
the registration of the said Grant without being able to find it — In Tender Consideration whereof and for 
as much as your Petitioner is advanced in years, and subject to be put to great expence and Trouble, in 
maintaining his just right and Possession to the said Land, He therefore Humbly prays your Honorable 
Body, will tale his hand case under your Consideration, and grant him such relief in the premises, as the 
nature of his case requires &c And your Petitioner as In duty bound Shall Pray &c

Pitt County Cohabitation Records, 1866 

Part 8 

(last installment) 



In the March 1866 session of the North Carolina General Assembly, an Act was passed concerning negroes 
and persons of color. Justices of the Peace were to collect and record in the County Clerk's office, a record 
of the cohabitation of former slaves to ratify their state of marriage. The Court Clerk was required to 
maintain a record book for this purpose and to receive 25 cents per entry for his service. In Section 6, 
Chapter 40 of the Act, it was a misdemeanor if negroes did not record their marriage by Sept. 1 , 1 866 This 
section of the Act was amended by Section 1, Chapter 70 (ratified March 1867), to extend the time of 
recording these marriages to Jan. 1, 1868. Contributed by Roger Kammerer.

Daily Reflector, April 25, 1 905 

Louis NOBLES, an old colored man died here Saturday. He claimed to have been born in 1795 making him 
in his 1 10 th year. He never saw George Washington, Lafayette nor had he visited Queen Victoria at 
Windsor Castle. He never voted any ticket, because he did not wish, as he said, to oppose the white race,

Daily Reflector, Thurs., April 18, 1922 

Kinston, April 18 — William Henry COX, aged 78, and one of Kinston's oldest citizens, died yesterday

conducted this afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. Francis J. H. COFFIN, rector of St. Mary's 
Episcopal church, and will be held from the residence at McLewean and Blount streets. His death will be a 
distinct shock to his many friends, as he had been in apparently fine health up till the stroke. He arose 
yesterday morning in apparently fine health, but after the first coming of the paralysis he spoke to no one 
and finally died a short time later. Mr. COX was interested in the real estate business, owning several 
homes in Kinston. He had an office in the Spear Cycle Company, on Queen street, and was one of the city's 
most familiar figures. He was a farmer for many years. Several years ago he suffered a similar stroke and 
has been paralyzed in one side ever since. The following survive — his wife, a son, Robert COX, connected 
with the Kinston post office department, and one daughter, Mrs. Mark MEWBORN, with the T. W. 
MEWBORN Company store. He was a man of fine character and known to a very large number of people 

in this county and in Eastern Carolina. He was a native of Pitt and had lived here since 1897. Ed. Note 

Mr. COX will be remembered pleasantly by Greenville people, having been in business in this city several 
years ago. News of his death will be received with profound regret.

Eastern Reflector, Wed., May 3, 1882 

Departed this life on Saturday, the 29 th ult., at 4 P. M., after a long illness, Joseph GAINER, at his home 
near Flat Swamp Church, in Pitt county, N.C. The death of this estimable gentleman has cast a gloom over 
the entire community. Thus death has deprived Pitt of one of her devoted sons, the community of one of its 
best citizens whose loss is uncalculable and his bereaved family of a devoted husband and kind father. We 
tender our heartfelt sympathies to the family and sincerely hope they may be comforted by knowing that he 
has only exchanged this miserable and unfriendly world for a home in a clime of eternal happiness and 
bliss. "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord." G. A. G.

Tom W. Whiten urst Dies 

Weekly Herald (Robersonville, NC) Wed., Feb. 12, 1936 

Thomas Wallace WHITEHURST, a native of Pitt County, but a resident of this county for a number of 
years, died at the home of Jim AUSBON, near Robersonville, early Tuesday evening of pnuemonia and a 
heart attack. He had been in ill health for some time, having suffered a stroke of paralysis about three years 
ago. Last rites were conducted this afternoon and interment followed in the old Whitehurst burial plot, in 
Pitt County. Mr. WHITEHURST, 58 years old, was at one time a prominent man of affairs in this county. 
He, with Jim MOORE, operated a lumber business and was said to have succeeded in that venture until 
domestic troubles developed. He was at one time employed by M. O. BLOUNT, Bethel, and the Nash 
Lumber Company, of Rocky Mount. He later moved to Norfolk, but made his home near Robersonville 
during the past few years. Mrs. WHITEHURST, who he divorced some time ago, is living in Norfolk. No 
children survive the union. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. CURRY, of Hobgood; and Mrs. John CHERRY, of 
Stokes, and four brothers, Zeb, Fate, Edwin and David WHITEHURST, all farmers of this section.
